I bought a video camera online recently, and I received the camera just a few days ago, so I decided to take it for a spin and record the entire painting process of this piece. It's up on my YouTube channel in the link above as a sped up 'speed paint' video. Hopefully it's remotely interesting, I really did enjoy doing it and watching the process over, so if you enjoy it/hate it or have any ideas and feedback, I'd love to know whether to continue recording videos like these!

I love Harry Potter. I love the films and the novels. I just loved everything about it, probably because I grew up with it and it really did make up my childhood. Maybe it was just the idea of "magic" and "adventure" that spoke to me and really made me fall in love with it all. Or maybe it wast just HOW GOD DAMN BEAUTIFUL EMMA WATSON (Hermione) IS. No but really, I'm such a huge Harry Potter fan.

I created this painting to not only commemorate the birthday of Hermione Jean Granger (September 19th), but also as apart of a mini-series of watercolour portraits of the golden trio; Harry, Hermione and Ron! I've almost finished Harry, and I think Hermione here is done and dusted.

Any particular reason you left the lips out?

Yes there is! HAHA, I've been asked that quite a bit, but it was because I wanted to create a silhouette effect, permitting only 'a slit of light' around the eyes. I intended for the trio to be done traditionally in watercolour and painted over and developed digitally, which was where the effect was meant to be more obvious nad pronounced, but I haven't done that yet, hence the missing lips!!
